Pure and Simple: The Buddhist Teachings of a Thai Laywoman

by

Pure and Simple: The Buddhist Teachings of a Thai Laywoman Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Upasika Kee was a uniquely powerful spiritual teacher. Evocative of the great Ajahn Chah, her teachings are earthy, refreshingly direct, and hard-hitting. In the twentieth century, she grew to become one of the most famous teachers in Thailand--male or female--all the more remarkable because, rarer still, she was not a monastic but a layperson. Her relentless honesty, along with her encouraging voice, is one reason so many contemporary Buddhist teachers recall Upasika Kee so fondly, and so often. With this book, readers seeking something reminiscent of the classic Mindfulness in Plain English can receive instruction on meditation practice as they become acquainted with the legacy of a renowned Buddhist figure. Pure and Simple, the first widely-available collection of her writings, will be gratefully received not only by those who knew Upasika Kee, but by anyone who encounters her for the first time in its pages.

Synopsis:

Upasika Kee broke through to complete inner peace. Here is one woman's universal achievement. Kate Wheeler

Synopsis:

Upasika Kee was a uniquely powerful teacher. Evocative of the great Ajahn Chah (teacher and author of Food For the Heart ), her teachings are earthy, refreshingly direct, and often funny. In the twentieth century, she grew to become one of the most famous teachers in Thailand — male or female — all the more remarkable because, rarer still, she was a layperson!

About the Author

Upasika Kee Nanyon was a uniquely powerful spiritual teacher. Evocative of the great Ajahn Chah, her teachings are earthly, refreshingly direct, and hard hitting. In the twentieth century, she grew to become one of the most famous teachers in Thailand-male or female-all the more remarkable because, rarer still, she was not a monastic but a layperson. Her relentless honesty, along with her encouraging voice, lead many contemporary Buddhist teachers to recall Upasika Kee fondly and often. Pure and Simple is the first widely available collection of her writings.
